Avtec announces ScoutLink, a revolutionary enhancement for dispatch console communications
Lexington, SC, March 21 - Avtec, the nation's leading independent provider of Radio over IP (RoIP) dispatch console systems, today announced the upcoming release of ScoutLink™ -- an innovation that opens access to the Scout™ dispatching console platform to off-the-shelf IP devices. ScoutLink extends communications to users not previously possible and leverages the range of connectivity supported by Scout to a wider audience.
ScoutLink integrates existing voice products to enable dispatch communications on a variety of IP devices even allowing access to platforms that are traditionally non-voice. This means users can extend dispatch communications to places where a full-scale console position would be cumbersome or in other situations that require a departure from the standard console form factor.
"ScoutLink is another example of our commitment to market-driven innovation. We are committed to providing more choices to help our clients and partners build the dispatch communications systems they need," Avtec Director of Product Marketing Carlos Palacios said.
ScoutLink will launch with the Mini SIP Console from Essential Trading Systems (ETC) and will be sold and supported by Avtec. The Mini SIP Console controls up to four radio endpoints and has undergone compatibility testing with Scout to ensure a smooth, quality experience for our clients. Some examples of uses for the ETC Mini SIP Console include a railyard that wants to provide four-channel radio access to senior executives for emergency monitoring, a remote airfield guardhouse that assures logistics for a small group of ramp workers, or the local office of a utility operation that is activating a small subgroup to manage a regional disaster.
ScoutLink will be available to order in Q2 of 2016. Additional ScoutLink capabilities will be introduced twice a year through standard Scout software releases, available to customers under Avtec's ScoutCare™ program.
